Police Capt Dwayne Ready said officers were called to the scene at about 1340 (1840 GMT) after a man was seen with a gun and two shots heard.

The gunman was not identified but was reported to be an employee at the site.

He was described as a white male aged between 50 and 60.

Jeeze another one. How many will it take before the US start to even consider tightning their gun laws.

Its sad to see so many people (the majority of which are innocent victims) getting caught up in all this.

Its giving the violence in Iraq a competitor at the moment I suppose lol.

One small step for a Gun Man
One giant leap for the Hostage !

Its going to get to the point where everyone in the
states has to walk through a x-ray machine omg

But if you have woken up that day with the thoughts
of killing with a gun, then there isn't much to stop you.

I doubt there is anywhere truly safe, and i doubt
anything will happen to the law as it would cost them the government.

Making guns accessible to people gives them more chance of going and shooting people. There are so many gun incidents in the US nowadays (and I am not just talking about the ones that make the headlines), any sane country would have banned them by now.

Lol, Them crazy Yanks raftl

Thing about guns over there is that I belive there is something in the Constitution which means you can have a gun.

Sure you can tighten the gun laws up, but that will just mean those legally owning them will be more legal.

It wont actually stop anyone wanting to use a gun if they want to kill someone. As already mentioned, its the person, not the gun, and lets face it, in some states they all sleep with their family and incest is high - its not really surprising that they are all so fooked up!
